    I am paying...dare I say.....$14 a bag!!!! Where, oh where would I find it that much cheaper? I don't have a TSC here....which kinda sucks since the way everyone talks about it, I would love to visit one. I get mine at Dallas Green which is about 3 mins from my house. I would definitely drive a bit further if I could get TWO bags for almost the price I am paying for ONE now......Cal Ranch is a bit more expensive....I may have to check IFA.

    Dang....EIGHT bucks for 50 lbs??

    My 50# bag at the local feed store is $16.20 and that's the "white sheet" price since we order 20 bags of horse feed each month. I hate to see what it retails for. [​IMG] BlueSeal Gamebird crumbles.

    Oh, good! I am glad that I am not paying a lot more than I should be.

    Thanks so much.

    Quote:That's crazy! comes to almost $23 per 50-pound bag. Try buying in bulk.

    I'm working with a local lady that mills her own feed. She's doing a special mix for me, and when all is said and done it comes to almost $12 per bag. I have to buy a ton (40 bags) at a time. Beats buying at the feed store for $17 though!!!
